I've been making a lot of pencil skirts lately and I think nothing looks cuter than a pencil skirt, a plain T, and a pendant necklace. I couldn't find any pendant necklaces that were plain and simple without being $50! So I thought I'd just make one! I rushed out to Michael's to get supplies and figured out a way to make my own pendant necklaces. I am NOT a jewelry maker, but I found a really simple (and cheap) way to make a cute pendant necklace to go with all your pencil skirts this fall! The best part is, NO TOOLS NECESSARY! Just scissors.
Here are the supplies you'll need.
|You will need a chain, these little gold pins (not a jewelry maker so I don't know what they are called), small rings, and big beads!|
|You need these three things in order to make your pendant.|
|First you will twist and bend your gold pin in order to get it to look all funky like the picture above.|
|Then you will twist it into the bead, it will be a little bit difficult, but the more difficult it is then the more secure it will be inside of your bead. I've been wearing mine for a week now and it is still securely in place.|
|Then cut whatever part of the pin is showing from the bottom of your bead. I just used regular scissors.|
|Then take your little ring and open it up with your fingers. I didn't need pliers, I just used my finger nails.|
|Then loop the ring through the pin and close it tight, squeezing it in between your fingers.|
There you go! Now you have your very own pendant necklace to wear out and about! I can't wait to make it in more colors!
